HANOVER, N.H. (August 11, 2017) – Jack Heller, Hartford High School, Vt. graduate and Cadet Captain in the Lebanon, N.H. Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol points out details of “Contact Angle Goniometry of Hydrophobic Materials” during the annual Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab’s Science and Technology Symposium at the lab. Eighteen other presenters also shared their summer science contributions. “The symposium is the capstone event of our student and post-graduate program. It’s a true privilege to be able to help merge fresh, talented minds with CRREL mentors and help develop our nation’s next generation of scientists,” said event coordinator Linda Castro. CRREL is one of seven labs of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory’s Heavy Vehicle Simulator is shown with the new infrared heating system panels installed in the lower area. The IR system was designed, fabricated and built in five weeks by a team with CRREL’s Engineering Resources Branch. This heating system will allow researchers to test hot mix asphalt year round, keeping the test area at a continuous temperature (ambient to more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit/ 49 degrees Celsius).
